How Felician Sisters are Helping with Refugee Resettlement Connecticut
“We are in desperate need of furniture and household items” stated Kimberly May-Bailey, the Director of Migration, Refugee and Immigration Services for the Catholic Charities Office in the Archdiocese of Hartford. The Felician Sisters in Enfield offered most of the items in St. Clare’s convent, the small cottage across the street from the central convent. On Tuesday, Felix, the representative from Catholic Charities who sets up apartments for new refugees resettling in the diocese arrived and loaded up his truck with furniture, kitchen appliances, linen and other household items. Later that day, the items were delivered to two apartments in Hartford being set up by Catholic Charities for families arriving from Syria and Pakistan.
